“Alpha-Beta” aimed to enable adult education providers to apply new methods of teaching for learners with literacy issues, using modern communication technology.
These new resources were developed in consultation with adult learners to meet their needs. Ireland (Exchange House National Travellers Service) was partnered with Germany, Austria, Greece, Italy and Romania. Exchange House developed modules on Fire Safety at work, Substance Misuse and Mobile Phone Technology.
The project was funded by the European Union under the Education and Culture Socrates Programme, Minerva-ODL and ICT . The programme ran from 2006 and concluded in September 2008.
